OVC Nominated for the Digital Rochester Great Awards

Recently, the Open Video Chat team was nominated for the Digital Rochester Great Awards.

The OVC team and one other student from RIT were nominated for the Student Achievement award.
Awarded to a student, currently enrolled in a Greater Rochester higher education institution, who showed leadership and skill in applying or advancing innovative technology for the betterment of themselves, their educational institution, and/or the greater Rochester Community.

It appears that we were nominated by someone who had seen us showing off Open Video Chat at RIT's Imagine Festival last year where we had a booth set up in the center of the Innovation Center. I personally never herd of this award group and was not expecting to be nominated by a random spectator, I really appreciate it.

Since the nomination, I have been interviewed by RIT University News and just today we made it onto the Homepage of RIT's Computer Science Department.
